Strange Sensation

I haven’t slept normally for several weeks. Within days, I got put back on twelve hour shifts after only a few weeks of seven nines, B left, and the new house was completed.

With all of that happening at the same time, I’ve had precious little time available for sleep. Much of what time I had was lost due to one house related obligation or another. And up until about a week ago, no matter how exhausted I was when my head hit the pillow, my mind kept sleep at bay for far too long.

About ninety minutes ago, I hit a particularly hard wall. To combat it, I paced from one end of the catwalk to the other, fighting to keep my eyes open. I just paused at one end, and leaned against the monitor station housing. For a split second.

The next thing I knew, my knees had buckled and I was headed for the floor. Yes, I fell asleep standing up. Never did that before. Hope to never do it again. It’s not a particularly pleasant feeling.

  1. You need a vacation. A real one, not a “have a million things to do so-called vacation from work” deal but an honest to goodness sleep and relax and enjoy just being alive with no obligations vacation. 💕
